Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Man o War Won 20 out of 21 races including the Belmont Stakes. He was voted the greatest horse of the 1st half of the 20th century. Race Horses What are some famous race horses and why are they famous? Seabiscuit He was a symbol of hope for the Americans. He was not likely to win, in the end he showed everyone that he could race. There was a movie made about him in 2003, check it out! Citation He won 8 out of 9 races in his first year. He ranked 3rd in the top 100 champion racehorses in the 20th century. He was named horse of the year in 1950, because of his 15 streak win. Ruffian She has many nicknames but one of them is "Queen of the Fillies". In 1974, she won the filly triple crown (hardest race to win and run). She had a tragic ending when she had to be put down during a race when she shattered her shoulder in the starting gate because she was nervous and anxious. Her front leg snapped during her run because of her shattered shoulder, it was like cause and effect.

Race horses j There are so many famous race horses but my favorite racehorse is Secreriat, he was an amazing, fast, competive horse. This was a really fun project, I liked everything about it. I liked the teacher (Mrs. Morton) I liked my topic and learning how to find authoritative sites and tell the difference. I really like Digital Litercy Summary Reasearch Process 1. I chose this for my topic because I really like horses and I know a lot about show jumping but not a lot about Race horses so thats why.

2. I picked Britannica because Mrs. Morton told us about diffrent reasources and I thought it would be perfect.

3. I picked this format because I thought it would be really cool to have everything set up this way with the sliding frames, colors, the fact that you can put videos onto here, (etc.)

4. I learned from this project how to use computers and that 8ft is in 1 length. I also learned about other famour racehorses that i didnt know about like Ruffian and Citation.
